We believe we’ve mentioned before in this space that should the Devils organization ever completely lose its mind and start giving media credentials to bloggers, we wouldn’t really be all that interested in taking them up on the offer. Now, we realize the Devils are never actually going to start presenting this opportunity to bloggers (it would require a remarkable sequence of events that entails the organization proving to be computer literate, proving to understand this crazy new interwebs technology all the kids are using these days, and proving to care what the fans think of them), but we still get a bit nervous when we consider the possibility that we could someday be in a situation where we’d have to ask questions to Devils players. Really, the best we would normally be able to think of to say to a Devil after a win would be, “How awesome was that?”, and after a loss we’d probably ask something like, “How do you look at yourself in the mirror every day? And do you hate us? Is that why you suck so bad? Do you want us to be unhappy?” In other words, we don’t think we have a lot to offer the world of traditional sports journalism. Or rather, we didn’t think so, until now. Because we have actually, after much deliberation and serious thought, discovered a matter about which we genuinely would like to hear what a certain New Jersey Devil has to say.
That’s right, Gentle Reader — we’ve come up with a question we would really ask if we had some kind of media access to the Devils. And not only have we finally thought of something we want to ask a Devil, but it’s a question that is now consuming us. We simply must find out the answer.
